Get alerted about emergencies and other important community news by signing up for our Emergency Alert Program (Everbridge). This system enables us to provide you with critical information quickly in a variety of dangerous situations.
You will receive time-sensitive messages wherever you specify, such as your home, mobile or business phones, email address, text messages and more. You pick where, you pick how.
Over the past 3 years, the West St. Paul Police Department has been researching body cameras. This includes technology, policy development, and implementation. Body cameras are excellent tools for law enforcement to use for the documentation of events, statements, and other types of evidence.
We are currently testing four systems and are hopeful to have full implementation in the fall. In the meantime, we would like your input on the body camera program as well as the draft departmental policy before implementing a final version of the Portable Audio/Video Recorder Policy.
